The tradition of jacquard weaving, embroidery, hosiery and stocking production is showcased in the former textile factory. Comprehensive textile collections of furniture fabrics, woven pictures, stockings, knitted goods and underwear demonstrate the quality and variety of the fabrics and clothes that used to be made here. The more than 80 years of motor racing history at the Sachsenring circuit is graphically displayed here with about 30 racing cars, a “Melkus RS 1000” car, photos, memorabilia and old film material. Special temporary exhibitions on municipal and cultural historical issues supplement the permanent exhibitions.
